(Healing Through Remembering)

‘The punk music scene operated ‘underground’ during the 1970s and created an environment where it didn’t matter who you are or where you came from. People met and became friends across the community and social divides. Local bands such as Stiff Little Fingers, The Outcasts, and The Undertones made their mark internationally as well as locally, whether their material was about the political situation, or about the usual teen angst. The punk scene of those times is now the theme of various books, and even academic conferences.’
